Thank you for your interest in The Moving Force Journal. Our mission is to find and publish the new classics, the truly exceptional, the ones that are worthy of our predecessors, the ones that will stand the test of time, the ones that we’re proud to know will represent the literature of our era.

Our only selection criterion is excellence—nothing else. As Ayn Rand stated in The Fountainhead, “the moving force” of creativity and invention is an individual’s ability to take what one has inherited from the past, learn from it, then ultimately craft something original. As part of an ever-evolving literary landscape, we have inherited the great thoughts and works of individuals before us. Now, it is our time to create the literature that will be passed down to future generations.

Issue 2 is now live! 


Our spring issue is now online. Expanding on our mission of publishing timeless work, it includes over 100 pages of short stories, poetry, and visual art, as well as compelling work from a category that is new to The Moving Force Journal: non-fiction. Let our 22 contributors to this issue take you on a “journey” from the wilds of Africa, to the dark recesses of memory, to Jupiter as they explore the theme of loss. Read the full issue now.


Submissions are currently being reviewed for our third issue, to be released in Fall 2020. Please read our Submission Guidelines for more information.
